PSA: Medical Transportation (for Medicaid Recipients)

Available to Texas residents statewide:

Medical Transportation Service

Texas Department of Transportation has a service called the Medical Transportation Program in place to accommodate those in need of accessible non emergency medical transportation services. It is a charter service made up of 12 passenger vans equipped with a lift. The van will take you to and from your doctor’s office, dental office, or hospital. This service may be covered by Medicaid or Medicare, but check with your provider to be sure. You can also pay for the use yourself for the fee of $35.00 round-trip.

To schedule a pick up call 1877-MED-TRIP between 8:00am and 5:00pm CSTon weekdays. You must schedule your pick up for at least two working days in advance but will attempt to accommodate urgent requests. Persons requesting service should have their nine digit Medicaid or Medicare number or Social Security number, their Health Care Provider’s name, address, and phone number, and the date, time and location of the appointment.

To be eligible for the service you must have a current valid Medicaid ID card and have no other means of transportation.
